Danish sound designer and film sound recordist Malthe Bjørn Jensen likes DPA’s d:screet™ 4061 Miniature Microphones so much that he wants to eat one! While recognising that it’s probably best not to try this for real, Jensen says: “I’ve always been really impressed by the big sound you get from these very small microphones. Their small size makes them very handy - I often use them on film sets to record sounds in places where a bigger microphone wouldn’t fit.”

DPA Microphones Bring Clarity and Subtlety to the Cajón Drum

Posted by DPA Microphones

This popular box drum is notoriously hard to amplify, but thanks to DPA there is now an easy close miking solution.

The all-wooden box drum, or cajón may be the world’s most popular percussion instrument, yet it is also one of the hardest to amplify because it produces sharp bursts of sound energy (transients) when played. Finding microphones that really capture the subtle “woodsy” tone and transient-rich sound of his cajón was proving something of a challenge for percussionist David Mortara – until he discovered the DPA d:dicate™ range.

DPA Helps Norwegian Singer Moddi Incorporate Old Tech Into Live Gigs

Posted by DPA Microphones

27/03/17 09:45

Sound engineer Tom Meyer turned to DPA when Norwegian folk artist, Pål Moddi Knutsen asked him to mic up an old Philips cassette player that played a key role in two of his songs.

“When Moddi turned up with the cassette player I was a bit surprised,” explains Meyer, who runs TM Tour Productions in Bardu, North Norway. “My solution was to use a DPA d:screet™ 4060 Omnidirectional Microphone so that we could get the best possible sound and still keep the stage tidy and free from unwanted mic stands. Moddi never uses monitors, so we had more than enough headroom for the PA. We used a DPA Universal Surface Mount to position the microphone on top of the cassette player so that we could capture sound from the internal speaker. It worked really well and allowed us to incorporate the cassette player into his live performance.”
